Crist Would Veto Reform Bill

Crist threatens veto if House passes its proposed PSC reform bill:
The Buzz,
"He dislikes the provision that strips the PSC of its ability to initiate utility cases. Under the plan, the PSC would act like a judicial panel but its role of initiating rate-making and being the watchdog would go to a separate Office of Regulatory Staff, which would be under the control of the Legislature.  
"When you look at staff under the Legislature taking control of these issues, instead of the Public Service Commission, and the fact that the staff can decide not to weigh in on a rate increase and just let it come to pass, it sounds pretty darn bad to me,'' Crist said.
